Women have probably been active in technology since the dawn of time, but one of the earliest recorded examples is in the 1700s. In 1753, Nicole-Reine Lepaute created a clock with an astronomical function. Nicole-Reine probably didn’t know it at the time, but she would become one of the first notable women in tech. 

Many innovative and strong women have worked tirelessly to carve out a meaningful place for women in tech, a once male-dominated space. As we look back on this year’s Women’s History Month, the Oracle Advertising and CX team would like to highlight some of the best moments from last month and share insights from women at Oracle.

Learn how Oracle is breaking the gender bias from Traci Wade

In this post Traci Wade, vice president and global head of Diversity and Inclusion at Oracle highlights the ways Oracle and its employees are working to end gender bias. In her post, Traci says, “Oracle CEO Safra Catz understands the importance of the IWD 2022 campaign theme well. In an internal event we held last month, Safra said to me: ‘I can tell you, I wouldn't be where I am today if folks did not fight their unconscious bias when I first started.’”

Monika Thakur, vice president, SaaS Engineering, Oracle, shares how she plans to #breakthebias

Monika Thakur shared her thoughts on what women need to do to continue breaking barriers and biases. She reminds women that “Every one of us has a responsibility to ensure that women challenge the status quo. We must continue to empower women and ensure that we propel them into leadership roles.” Where would women be if we hadn’t started making room for ourselves at tables where decisions are being made? Thakur shares insightful guidance about our responsibility to ourselves and fellow women to continue to #breakthebias.

Women in Oracle Advertising and CX share their insights

 

"Don't be afraid to step in and step up. You have a unique voice. Let the world hear you."

 

"My favorite sport is watching young women become who they are."

Constance Turman
Director, global events, Oracle Global Marketing for Advertising and CX

 

"I've been working in various roles in tech for nearly 20 years, so I've had a front-row seat to watch more women earning senior tech leadership roles. By far, the best thing about my customer marketing role at Oracle is that I get to applaud and highlight so many female executives from our customers. I can shine the spotlight on these amazing women on stages, in case studies, and through articles to amplify their success across the industry. Representation matters and I'm so proud to be able to provide the applause they've already earned."

Angela Wells
Head of Oracle Customer Marketing - Strategic Clients

As women continue to evolve their roles in the technology space, it is important to remember that we wouldn’t be where we are today without trailblazers such as Nicole-Reine Lepaute
